Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: "Shakedown St"Heavyweight Championship

ummm....no he wasn't. There's a reason he lost his title almost as soon as he got it. Great fighters don't win just one big fight...true, his victory over Tyson is possibly the greatest upset in fight history, but that had as much to do w/Iron Mike not taking Buster seriously, not training enough for the fight, as it did w/Douglas fighting one very great contest.
But the true mark of a real champion is to win consistently over time over a great number and variety of fighters, as Ali did.

That's why the Shakedown I've mentioned here is also a champ...it's flawless & I'll put it up against any other, including the much hyped, and frankly overrated 6/30/85.
